Tasting Notes

A vibrant wine with white floral aromas, zippy citrus fruit and great mineral backbone. A classic pairing for seafood, this is especially delicious with oysters.

Staff Pick Notes

Vinified in stainless steel and left for 14 months on its lees, this is a lush Santorini with concentrated aromas of lemon. The flavors are ripe, from pineapple to golden raisin, yet they're balanced by a strong minerality. It’s a very well-balanced wine that pairs with grilled fish or a fresh Greek salad. Santo is a cooperative based in Santorini, the beautiful Greek island famous for its beaches. They built a state-of-the-art winery and represent all the growers of the island. They are committed to creating high quality wines and respecting the tradition of the island.

Assyrtiko

Pronounced "a SEER tee ko". This white varietal is native to Santorini and the other Aegean Islands. Used to make crisp dry wines similar in style to dry Riesling, it is often blended with other varietals - both indigenous and international - such as Sauvignon Blanc. This grape is also used to make the popular Greek dessert wine, Vinsanto.
